Ecotourism '08

Middle East
Conference on

Sustainable Ecotourism Development

Radisson SAS Hotel, Amman

April 17-19, 2008


Ministry of Environment

The Ministry of Environment has established a special program under the name of GREEN TAS which stands for Development of methods and tools for the establishment of Good Environmental performance in the Tourist Accommodation Sector in Jordan - implementation of pilot studies.

The project aims to develop strategies and instrument to pro-actively address the problems caused by increasing tourism in order to ensure a sustainable development of the sector in Jordan. In order to directly involve the tourism industry in the project, Hotels and universities have been invited to join as strategic partners.

The economic viability of environmental measures is of great concern to this
project. The partners in this project are:

- University of Cyprus representing the European countries
- Ministry of Tourism
- Hashemite University
- Jordan University of Science and Technology
- Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts - Jordan
- AEOLIKI Ltd as consultant

In November 2006 Moevenpick developed and published a technical report and environmental review, specially focusing on the hotelís aspects in terms of destruction of habitat of flora and fauna and the unique ecosystem of the Dead Sea as well as sustainable utilization of resources and safety of guests and employees.

This report could become a guide for other destinations and form a platform for awareness and competence training.
